Life in Year 3 is full of excitement. This is the year at The Discovery School that the children have the opportunity to:
Throughout the year we look at the following cross-curricular topics:
Reading every night – to be recorded in the reading record (if a child records this, please can an adult over see this occasionally to check in). Children are expected to read every night and will be rewarded for this on a weekly basis.
Swimming takes place on a Tuesday afternoon - this is a statutory requirement. Each class goes swimming at Larkfield for two terms during the year. Pasteur class went swimming during terms 1 and 2. Curie class are going during term 3 and term 4. Nightingale class will be going in terms 5 and 6. On the days that they go swimming, they will need a named towel, swimming costume and a hair brush or comb. We strongly recommend that the children are also provided with a set of goggles. All of this should be brought in a suitable waterproof bag. If your child has long hair, they must tie this back. Larkfield swimming pool require children to take their earrings out during swimming lessons.
